  • Rashard Lawrence: Won't make 53-man roster

    Lawrence was waived by the Cardinals on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    The 25-year-old started for Arizona the last two seasons under defensive coordinator Vance Joseph, but Joseph is now with Denver and Lawrence has been waived. He's appeared in 25 games throughout his three-year career, tallying 30 tackles, four tackles for loss and one forced fumble. The LSU product will be forced to look for a new home ahead of the coming season.

  • Cardinals' Rashard Lawrence: Competing for first team

    Lawrence, who was placed on injured reserve in October with a shoulder injury, participated in training camp practice Thursday, Jess Root of Yahoo Sports reports.

    Lawrence recorded 10 tackles and a forced fumble in five games with the Cardinals last season before going down with a shoulder injury in Week 5 against the Seahawks. He was placed on injured reserve and missed the rest of the 2022 season. Now that he's healthy, Lawrence is competing for a starting role on the defensive line alongside Leki Fotu and Jonathan Ledbetter.

  • Cardinals' Rashard Lawrence: Heads to injured reserve

    The Cardinals placed Lawrence (shoulder) on injured reserve Wednesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

    Lawrence's placement on IR opens up a spot on the active roster for Rodrigo Blankenship, who had been on the practice squad. The 24-year-old nose tackle suffered a shoulder injury Week 7 versus the Saints, and his absence from the practice report was due to being placed on IR, rather than having returned to health. He will have to miss a minimum of four weeks.

    Arizona coach Kliff Kingsbury said that Lawrence underwent hand surgery that will force him to miss some time, Tyler Drake of ArizonaSports.com reports.

    Lawrence suffered a hand injury during Sunday's loss to the Rams, and this issue apparently required a follow-up procedure Monday. The third-year defensive lineman recorded four tackles while playing 74 defensive snaps over the Cardinals' first three games.

    Lawrence is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Rams due to a hand injury, Tyler Drake of ArizonaSports.com reports.

    Lawrence has been a part-time player along Arizona's defensive line to this point in the season. He did not manage a tackle prior to exiting Sunday's game, and Leki Fotu should see an expanded role so long as Lawrence is sidelined.
